Kathy Bradley - Tales from Uncle Remus

When I was a little girl, our vacations always sent us north toward Rock City and Ruby Falls, Stone Mountain and Grant Park, Cherokee and the Great Smokies. And, in the absence in those days of an interstate highway system, our trek always took us through Eatonton, home of Joel Chandler Harris, creator of Uncle Remus.

Jim Healy: If at first you don't succeed, secede

Shortly after President Obama took office in 2009, his administration created the "We the People" website. Essentially, it offers a lot of information about the executive branch of government, how it works and, of course, the Obama administration's spin on issues.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen - Georgia's Salzburgers spark silk industry

Every Labor Day, nearly 1,000 people journey to the Salzburger homestead in Effingham County, Ga., for the anniversary of the arrival of the Germans in Georgia nearly 280 years ago. A large number of Bulloch County families are direct descendants of these immigrants, who braved a dangerous voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in horrible conditions in search of religious freedom in the new colony of Georgia.

Q: My 8-year-old son was born prematurely and weighed only 3 pounds. He is still too thin in my opinion, although his doctor hasn't been worried about it. I have been trying to get him to gain weight his whole life.

Jim Healy: What did GOP learn?

While I can't imagine what it was like for folks living in Ohio or Virginia and being overwhelmed with political ads wherever you were, I'm not going to miss the ads from Lee Anderson and John Barrow that ran like machine-gun fire on television during the past month.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stepparents have authority, deserve respect

Q: What is the role of a stepparent in parenting teenage stepchildren? My 19-year-old stepson moved in with us several months ago and is disrupting our marriage. He does what he wants, when he wants, and there are no consequences. How does one deal with a child that age when he refuses to follow the rules of the house?

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender - A month of gratitude for family and friends

It's that time of year when we purposefully stop to count our blessings, make mental lists of people and possessions for which we're thankful, and contemplate the order of our priorities. The month of November brings gratitude to the forefront of our minds, even though the gratitude attitude should be present year-round.

Kathy Bradley - By the waters of Babylon

Our ninth-grade literature textbook included the post-apocalyptic short story "By the Waters of Babylon" by Stephen Vincent Benet. The story follows a young boy, the son of a priest in a primitive society, as he journeys far beyond the borders his people have long honored. His long and dangerous quest takes him to the city of the gods, where he stumbles across the ruins of the great towers that once filled the city. Two of the rocks have words written on them, words he doesn't understand: UBTREAS and ASHING.

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - Fuzzy's Taco Shop opening on Sonny's site

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - How you can be perfect

Several years ago, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution ran an article in its sports section about the tee shot of professional golfer Tina Barrett on a par-3 hole in the Atlanta Women's Championship. The story reported that her ball went in the hole on the fly - but not all the way in. It actually buried in the soil on top of the plastic cup liner!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Stop expecting boys to behave more like girls

Q: When my 3-and-one-half year-old son misbehaves, I generally take things away from him, and he generally responds well. One lingering problem is that he tends to react physically when he's mad at a classmate instead of talking it out and letting the teachers intervene. We all have encouraged him to use words when he's angry, but he doesn't seem to get it.
